Joanne Simpson, Jobs' mother, who is admitted in a nursing home in Los Angeles, is suffering from advanced dementia, which has affected her memory. Her condition is that she can't even recognise herself, and is not aware of her son's death whom she gave up for adoption lots of years back when she was pregnant and was studying in a college.
Jobs's biological parents Abdulfattah John Jandali and Joanne Simpson couldn't accept him as they were not married. He (Steve Jobs) was brought up by Clara Jobs and Paul. Steve had tried to get compatible with his biological mother but never contacted his biological father.
In 2005, while addressing students at Stanford University, he had exposed his personal life and told them how reluctantly his mother signed the adoption papers and gave his responsibility to an educated family.
